A few words about us
Let us introduce ourselves
As Canadians living in the US, it’s been very difficult, if not darn right impossible to find good poutine. The dish that is often advertised as poutine in nothing but a different version of cheese fries. So, with the experience we developed with our Pop-up Patisserie business, co-founder and head of production Stephan Beauchesne came up with his own cheese curds and uses a sauce base imported from Montreal to create the best and most authentic poutine around.
Co-founder Greta Ober, also a Canadian, has experience in marketing and event planning. She focuses on brand and business development, as well as being the official taster.

What we do
Authentic Montreal poutine
Poutine, Montreal smoked meat sandwiches, and sweet and savory pastries. Our poutine can be just traditional (fries, curds and vegetarian and gluten-free sauce) or you can add smoked meat, bacon, or any of the weekly specials we offer. Add a smoked meat sandwich to make this a complete meal. We also have sausage rolls and tourtieres (French Canadian meat pies) as additional items to enjoy.
Using authentic ingredients and our own fromage en grain (“cheese curds”), we provide an incredible poutine experience. Vegetarian and gluten-free too!
We craft all our dishes with high quality ingredients and provide you with a food experience like no other. We also have French pastries such as eclairs, cream puffs and macarons, as well as Canadian deserts like butter tarts and Nanaimo bars.
Where are we “popping up” next?
New concept: Rice Around the World
We have started a new food concept called Rice Around the World. We have crafted a dozen rice bowls from various regions of the world. These bowls were inspired by our multicultural staff. We are working on adding new recipes over the next few months, covering even more regions. You can visit the concept’s website and even order for delivery or pick-up.
